It's not made to hinge. The two bolts are just there to keep it in place. There are brackets on the top side and bottom side that slide over the bucket lip.That's pretty slick having it so it can hinge up out of the way. I need to get something like this for my Mahindra Max25
That is what I used. Flea market for cheap.Very nice!
Not a bad idea, putting sickle rock guards to use like that. I like the idea of one that pivots out of the way too.
